How many times in 2020 have we had to change our plans? Everything from vacations to doctor appointments. Today we were supposed to go to Kentucky to visit our family. We haven’t seen them since Christmas, and we were so ready for this trip.
We live in South Carolina, and if you’ve listened to the news at all, you know we’re one of the hot spots. It didn’t matter because we had a plan. We’re already super cautious because of my husband works with elderly people. Our plan was to only go to three homes. We wouldn’t go shopping or out to eat. All we care about is seeing our family.
Then more and more people were getting tested. If we left for Kentucky, would we possibly take the virus to our loved ones? We have family members aged one to ninety-two. Was it fair to them? What about the people my husband works with? Would it be fair for us to leave if they needed him?
So, we finally decided to stay home. We’re not going to give up though. We’ll get there, but it won’t be today.
Aubrey Hepburn was known for her inspirational quotes, and I want to share three.
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
Paris is always a good idea.
The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.

Jackie, we share the disappointment of changed plans. At this moment, we were to be snuggling our newest grandson. Since we’re also in a hot spot, our trip is postponed. I wouldn’t want to expose the little guy or his parents to any extra complications. The health of our family is most important. With God’s timing, we’ll be with our loved ones. I’m sure you’re thankful for FaceTime and photos as we are. I’ve never been to Paris, but it looks lovely. Blessings to you, my friend, as we wait!
You’re right, Sherida. God’s timing is perfect, and I need to be patient. Congratulations on your new grandson!
